Hi guys, I didn't know where to post this, but it is a networking questions and saw "networking" in the description so hope this is ok. I kind of have a complicated situation, but I was hoping you could help me out. I have been trying to connect to my brothers Windows 7 computers but it doesn't work many of times. Here is how I am connected (this is where it is complicated) I have a Rogers modem --> Airport Extreme Base Station in the basement. I have an ethernet from AEBS --> Dlink Router 2 floors up. ... I added this because the AEBS signal was low and causing slow speeds. I then have my Dlink Router hardwired to my MacBook and PS3. I can connect to my brother's Windows 7 computer through Finder > Connect to Server > input his IP. However sometimes this doesnt work. His IP is 10.0.1.X and mine is 192.168.0.X When I restart the computer sometimes it connects. Now if I want to open ports I can't seem to do that, but I can live with that. Now also if I am in my house and my MacBook is connected to my router (192 IP), I want to VNC from my iPhone on the AEBS (10.0.1.X IP) it doesn't work. Since it is in the same house originating from the same modem shouldn't this work? How can I get this to work? Would it help if I had another AEBS in my room? Thanks, sorry if it confusing. I can explain if it's not clear. I just wanna be able to connect to my brother's computer easily and also control my MacBook from other parts of the hosue (the Dlink doesn't reach the basement so I can't connect to it). Thanks again.
